Raising Behaviour: 1 - a Survey of LEA Behaviour Support Services
01 October 1998
This is the first in a short series of reports arising from the NFER project 'Effective Behaviour Management in Schools' and concentrates on a review of LEA Behaviour Support Services (BSS). It relays findings from a national survey of BSS provision, covering such issues as location within LEA services, staffing, the range of support offered to schools, amount of inter-agency activity, funding, evaluation and monitoring as well as the general approaches and philosophy underpinning the service. Intended as a base-line study of this important LEA role, the report should be relevant to policy-makers and practitioners as well as those researching in the area of behaviour support.
